Why take this Parish Nurse Course from WLC?
Pastor Mike Woldt from David's Star Lutheran in Jackson, WI. in a letter of support for the course says, “Current and future nurses will benefit from a course in parish nursing taught from a confessional Lutheran perspective. Good training will help them share the law and gospel message of Scripture with the people they serve. Good training will help them function within the framework of the congregation and in partnership with the called leaders of the church. Good training will help them recognize opportunities for serving God’s people with the abilities they possess and the skills they have cultivated as practicing nurses.”
